Branden Dawson

Is anyone else watching the Michigan State vs. Wisconsin game? Branden Dawson is playing like a freak!
17 PTS 7/13 FG 3/4 FT 13 REB with 3:48 left in the game. He is a sophomore, when do you all think he will come out and where would you think he could go in the Draft? I think he will stay at least till his Junior year and could sneak into the lottery. Guy is a beast!

Has potential to be a late

Has potential to be a late first rounder whenever he comes out. Lottery might be a stretch.. but he really really REALLY needs to work on his perimeter game and jumper specifically. Amazing defender and rebounder who is extremely active with his hands all over the place. Will be an immediate contributer in the league as a defender just like Ronnie Brewer.

Love his strength,

Love his strength, athleticism, intensity, and defense. He can be a poor mans MKG to any team that takes him in the first, offensive game still a work in progress though.

No man Brandon Dawson has not

No man Brandon Dawson has not shot at being a lotto player, he's a 6'6 PF with no outside shot or perimeter skills. He's similar to Paul Harris of Syracus except Harris had a lot more all around polish.

Nope. I've watched every game of his for the last two years and he is definitely a swingman. Just doesn't have the outside game yet, partially due to him being out 7 months(!) with that torn ACL. When he has a full summer to change his shooting mechanics and ball handling, he will have everything you look for in an NBA swingman. NBA swingman body, athleticism, defense.. he just looks like an NBA player. I compare him to poor-man's Ronnie Brewer which I think is his best and most fair comparison.

Small Power Forward

at the next level. Chuck Hayes plus? His outside shot/range has so far to go, I don't know if it will ever get "there". He can guard 3s and small 4s at the next level. I wish him luck, since he's from Indiana.
